very confused!!! any advice?

last week my dear nanna took poorly she caught a family members sickness bug, after anti biotics drip she felt better and was ready to come home but the doc wouldnt let her out as when he pushed her right side it was sore. they done an xray, then a CT and they told us they could see a mass on the left side of her bowel, they tried a camera to have a look but it was too painful for her so yesterday they had a meeting to discuss what to do next, they told us this morning they will have to operate to look, most likely a biopsy but also gave us the bad news to expect that it is cancerous but to never lose hope that it is inflammation it can be hard sometimes to differ the two, any advice appreciated we are all so worried!! xxx
